Daniel Bolshoy will be in Kaslo starting August 5 for GuitarFest.

Classical guitars in Kaslo

From August 5 to 10 Kaslo GuitarFest plays host to a dozen or more classical guitarists who will be occupying the Langham

Not exactly an invasion, but from August 5 to 10 Kaslo GuitarFest plays host to a dozen or more classical guitarists who will be occupying the Langham Cultural Centre.

They will be participating in master classes, workshops, private lessons, and ensembles.

Internationally acclaimed guitarist, Daniel Bolshoy, heads the GuitarFest faculty. Born in Russia, raised in Israel, and now living in Canada, he receives rave reviews wherever he performs: “Bolshoy, though he possesses a technique of the highest order, is a musician first. When he plays, one hears music, not technique, and you can’t say that about many guitarists.”

Two concerts are planned as part of GuitarFest 2013, both taking place in the Langham Theatre:

• Daniel Bolshoy in Recital, Wednesday, August 7 at 7 p.m. ($12 advance, $15 at the door).

• Festival Participants Wrap-up concert, Saturday, August 10 at 2 p.m. Admission by donation

Kaslo GuitarFest is sponsored by the Kaslo Campus of Selkirk College and the Performing Arts Coalition of the Kootenays. For information phone 250-266-4623 or email sjdks@kaslo.org.
